Turning a New Leaf

As I have found myself increasingly busy, and less able to keep this blog updated, I have seriously considered discontinuing the blog. However, I think it is important to me to document the events of my life, significant and insignificant, so that at a later date I can reflect upon them. I think it would also be neat to one day have my children read parts or all of my blog and see what life was like for me growing up, both the important milestones and the day to day occurances. I got an idea from Pinterest, of all places, to do a daily documentation in one sentence or less. They suggested to write it on an index card, and then to start over the next year using the same index cards, so you can see what you did a year ago on that exact day. Then as the years go by, you can look back at what you did 10 years ago on that day. I thought the idea was interesting and fitting for me as I generally don't have a lot of time to blog. I am going to start doing one sentence posts and include at least one picture as well. On the occassion that something particularly big or important happens, I will actually do a full length blog post, but for now, I will stick to one sentence a day...starting tomorrow.

That's a really awesome idea! I just started blogging about my goal to get healthy because even if no one reads it I am much more motivated to continue when I write it down.

I saw this last year on pinterest and have been doing it since January 1st of this year. So I have a lot of index cards. It's funny to go back on some of them and read what happened.
